For the money and trade you are offering, I have a sony vx700. Its the exact same thing as the 1000 only it does not have 3 ccd only a 1 ccd. I have used this for professional shoots myself and just upgraded to 24p. If interested write back.

definatly save your money up to buy a vx1000 they are great cameras i have that i bought off ebay for 1300 and i have deah lens with it the vx 1000 is 3 chip and that makes a whole lot of diffrence from 1 chip they arent cheap but when you get one you know they are definatly worth it

-- Chae Devine (emericapunk02@aol.comn), December 15, 2003.

yeah the VX1s are what everybody is using, VX2s are sick too they can handle a few kicks but the sound quality isnt as good. go with the VX1, oh yeah brand new is probably 2500. plus death lens + 500.

Are you still looking for a VX1000 ? I have one give me a email and we can talk Dennis

-- Dennis Gillis (mmgillis@rawbw.com), January 29, 2004.

hands down dude vx2000 is better for nightshooting, and the 1000 is better for daylight. also if you need some lights you can go to home depot and theyre really cheap. the one problem is generators, but if youre shooting at a school, look around because there are always consoles, and get an extention cord. my dad has a 2000 and i use it when i can and i think im going to put the 1000's microphone into the 2000 because i have heard better about it. thought it might help if you plan to do night shots. peace

-- ben (emericanskater2004@yahoo.com), February 16, 2004.

Does anyone knows if a wide angle lens for a sony vx1000 really makes shot better or wider or isnt it worth buying and does any one knows how much an wide angle lens cost?

-- daniel van Eerd (daniel_vaneerd@hotmail.com), February 19, 2004.

Hello, I am the owner of Anecdote skateboard company and I was interested in purchasing a sony DCR vx 2000 from anyone, we are filming for our first video / ANecdote volume 1


-- David Phillip JOhnson (Anecdotesk8ter1@aol.com), June 21, 2004.

i am also looking to buy a vx 1000. accessories are welcome. a fisheye or other wideangle lens would be more than welcome additions. a century optics 3x fisheye lens would be prime but mainly i am looking for the camera. email me with a price and a description, possibly pictures; and i'll see if we can work out a deal. thanks Geoff

-- Geoff Smart (shortsk8er@msn.com), June 27, 2004.

i just recentaly bought a vx 1000 off of ebay. ebay always has 1000's for bid and "buy it now" so check that out. they usualy go for $1200. on average for buy it now. but usualy come w/ some kind of package.

-- Maxwell Stone (volcom360stone@aol.com), July 20, 2004.

-- Steven (ATV540@aol.com), August 29, 2004.

I have a vx 1000 for $975 but viewfinder doesn't work when up.People say there is a cheap fix for it? It works when its down.

-- Noah Wetzel (air_clockboy@freeskiing.com), October 07, 2004.

Why are all of you wasting your time with the vx1000 spend the extra and go for the vx2100 which is better and has a lot better features.

-- Steve (pooeater1228@yahoo.com), October 12, 2004.

Hey, looking for the cheapest deal on a vx1000, so serious about filming, someone give me a price under a thousand. Later

-- Ricky W. (xxspitxfirexx@aol.com), October 16, 2004.

Today on ebay i boguth a vx2000 with $800 worth of accessories for 1500 US. The extra stuff included: Pelican 1500 Hard Case, Sony VCL-HG0758 Wide Angle Conversion Lens x0.7, Sony NP-F960 additional long life battery, Sony ECM-HS1 Electret Condenser Microphone, Porta Brace RS-2000 Camcorder Rain Slicker.

Here's some pics: http://www.transistorproductions.com/SONYVX2000.htm

So anyone interested in a vx camera should check out ebay. They have awesome prices on used stuff, except for the vx2100, all you'll find for that one are expensive ass prices for pro kits, nothing used. I also saw vx1000's for really good prices, so check em out if your interested.

I decided to go witht he vx2100 over the cheaper vx1000 because of the low light, lcd screen, better veiw finder. Im mostly using it for skateboarding, but for school as well, so the lcd would be very useful .

if you read my last post, you will learn that i can not type whatsoever.

-- austin martin (ssskating@yahoo.com), December 05, 2004.

what are the pro's and con's between the vx1000 and vx2000 which is better?

-- Jamer Odney (artosaari1023@yahoo.com), January 02, 2005.

If someone spends over 1200 dollars for a vx1000e, he's crazy! If you do 400 dollars with that you can buy a vx2000 and that has a lcd screen en better resolution ;)

-- Jurriaan (jurriaanvandrunen@hotmail.com), January 12, 2005.

it is not better resolution than vx1000 or if so only at night shooting, vx1000 also has bigger chips which makes all the difference

-- dc (coomsuak@hotmail.com), January 15, 2005.
